that life thing

The Weekend of Everything & Nothing.

Hiya friends! Time to kick off a new week. I’ve already had a cup of coffee & am currently listening to the Disney station on the radio because, such is life. Lol. In case you couldn’t already tell, I’m comin’ in live today. Luckily for me, while I’m writing this in my morning time, y’all are still sleeping, so it’s fine 💁🏻 #perksoflivingabroad

Anyways. Let’s talk about this weekend where one day was full of everything under the sun & the next consisted of nothing!

Sofia’s been waking up about 7 am these days, so obviously, we’re up when she is. We kicked off the day with our workouts because we had a big day of eating ahead, lol. Our nanny who helps with Sofia a couple of times a week invited us over for lunch AND we had dinner plans with friends.

Lunch was freakin’ incredible, y’all. Our nanny had made a traditional Moroccan cous-cous along with chicken & veggies — and omg delicious doesn’t cover it. She also pulled out all the stops with 2 different desserts & tea. It took everything in me to not fall asleep in her living room, haha.

After all the lunch eating, we went home for a little rest & relaxation. Amir & Sofia took naps while I played Apple Genius Bar to my aunt who was figuring out her new phone! It was so fun chatting with her and laughing at how much we had to go to through just to set up her old iCloud backup.

In the evening, we met up with some friends that we got to know over Thanksgiving last year! We decided to have Ethiopian food and spent 3 hours gabbing & laughing.

By the time we made it home that night, it took approximately 10 minutes for all of us to fall asleep, lol.


I woke up feeling a little off in the morning and by 10 am was in full blown flu mode. Between body aches and the insane fever I was battling, I was done for the day. I literally spent my whole day binge watching New Girl. Have I ever mentioned how much I love that show? Freakin’ hilarious. Also, I have (always had) the biggest girl crush on Zooey Deschanel. She’s the cutest ever!

By 9:45 pm, I was out like a lightbulb. Luckily, there’s no fever so far today, but man those after-flu body aches are kil-ler. 

How was your weekend, friends?!

Linking up here today.

      Thank you, friend! I’m slowly on the mend. (I say that as I sit in my workout clothes and debate whether I should actually go to the gym or not, lol). Hope you’re having a fabulous week! x
